Head coach Jimbo Fisher said if Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Jameis Winston doesn't perform well this season, he will find a seat next to him on the sidelines. 

Expectations are high in Tallahassee for the 2014 season as defending national champion Florida State will start the year No. 1 in the coaches poll

“If Jameis doesn't go out and perform, he won't play,” Fisher said, via the Orlando Sentinel

Fisher made those comments as Florida State is set to start fall practice on Monday.

Winston completed 67 percent of his passes for 4,057 yards with 40 touchdowns and 10 interceptions last season, leading the Seminoles to their third national championship.
